Symbian Dictionary program MDictionary has been updated. The new stuff is all behind the scenes, though. Some bugs were fixed, and MDictionary now supports new databases.
MDictionary has a very simple and efficient user interface. Changing the direction of translation is as simple as switching a tab. The number of available language pairs is modest, but since MDictionary is open source everyone can join the programmers and add new language pairs to the list.
The built-in calculator of Symbian is simple. Too simple. There are better calculators for Symbian. cCalc is one of them. It's a free scientific calculator with many functions, including programmable equations. Those who're into money will find a couple of financial calculation tools in cCalc. The latest update killed a bug, remembers your choice of "fix" and "sci," and you can customise the location where cCalc saves its data.
